better week so far

The talk with idiotboss didn't go as desired.  I really had no interest in having a big Talk; I just wanted to acknowlege that I had talked to otherboss (since otherboss would have told him anyway), and if switching over there was going to mean that someone from that team had to move to this team...it would probably be a net loss for both teams, at a time when neither can afford it, so just leave things as is for now.  Maybe get his ass in gear with the team restructure that's supposed to bring both teams together, with a mutual front-door team...yeah, so he isn't moving very fast on that.

But then I started talking about all the stuff that bothered me.  He interpreted my comments as me "not trusting him".  Which implies that I think he's deceitful or something.  I think many things, but not that - he's honestly clueless.  So now I need to figure out how to redirect him, let him know that my actual point is that I don't trust his ability to accurately represent us.  For which I have many examples.  And I'm not the only one who's given him that feedback.

The agitation I feel is taking up entirely too much of my brain power.  But I did get some good work done over the weekend and today, and I will try to keep the momentum going...a few wins will help me tackle the other stuff.

Good yardwork weekend - that always helps too.  Cleared all the tree stuff from the location for the Actual Proper Compost Bins (blame Will Bonsall's book).  Now to submit a request to Digger's Hotline to mark the area (I know there are lines under there) so I can sink a few posts.  I think the long back wall of the bins will be made of wood from the cleared trees - much hand-sawing to do there.

Food:  threw together some stuff that seems to have made sweet potato and red lentil cornbread - ancho pepper and cumin for seasoning.  Turned out well - dense, but in a good way, and more moist than regular cornbread.  Ate it with pinto beans and garlic butter brussels sprouts; tonight made a black bean - okra - tomato thing to go with the rest.

Went to a gaming meetup with ex-housemate yesterday.  It was nice, but I didn't stay long - non-stop meetings 8:30-4 today; I needed to bulk up on non-people time as much as possible before this week began.
Friending welcome, but lurking is fine too.

Constructive criticism is also welcome - whatever it is, trust me, I've heard worse.
